20.0 Request for Information
Requests for Information (RFIs) are used to submit inquires to the project Consultants. A Requests for Information are issued by the General Contractor Project Manager, reviewed by the Contract Administrator, and closed by the General Contractor Project Manager. If additional information is required, responses are requested to selected Consultants by the Contract Administrator.
An RFI is the primary method for Contractors to ask questions of the consultant team. When the question is asked, the Contractor can choose which discipline(s) they want to ask the question to. Onware automatically finds the correct consultant(s) and requests a response to the RFI.
After a response has been received by the specified discipline(s), a notification is sent to the Contract Administrator asking RFI to be reviewed. If necessary, the Contract Administrator is able to re-direct the RFI to other disciplines for additional input. They can also provide a response and return the RFI to the Contractor that issued it.
